JROMC News:

The J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial Committee is pleased to announce the winners of the 2021 scholarship awards for Northern New Mexico High School seniors. 

The first J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial Committee (JROMC) scholarship was awarded in 1984 to a graduating senior from Los Alamos High School in memory of J. Robert Oppenheimer. The JROMC has awarded over 235 scholarships and other awards totaling more than $630,000 since the program was begun in 1984.

The scope of this program has grown over the years to multiple scholarships awarded to seniors at Los Alamos, Pojoaque Valley, Santa Fe and Capital High Schools. Scholarships are granted to graduating high school seniors based on merit and recognize a variety of achievements.

The philanthropic organization’s scholarship program is supported by several limited term endowments; numerous small, individual donations; and major contributions from the New Mexico Consortium, the Delle Foundation, and The Los Alamos High School Class of 1969.  

The J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial Committee is dedicated to preserving the legacy of Robert Oppenheimer, the first director of Los Alamos National Laboratory and one of the most influential scientists of the 20th Century. In addition to its annual scholarship program, the JROMC sponsors each year the Oppenheimer Memorial Lecture.
